  • Apple Not Likely to Feel Chill From Recent Economic Numbers [View article]
    OK, but, if the market falls we could buy aapl at a lower price.

    So it does matter to investors who want to buy aapl.

  • Ignoring Germany's Nuclear U-Turn [View article]
    Duh! Other means of power production: Coal, solar (they are keen on that), hydel, etc... Each has its advantages and disadvantages -- but then so does everything else in life.

  • Ignoring Germany's Nuclear U-Turn [View article]
    Building a nuclear plant that will never have a disaster is like building a plane that will never crash. It can't be done.

    We tolerate planes is because:
    A. They are still much safer than other means of transport
    B. A plane crash, when it happens, affects a limited number of people, not a whole region, and does not float in the air to other countries as nuclear does.

    Both these reasons do not apply to nuclear plants (though the author will desperately try to argue that they do).

    The author seems to be part of the nuclear lobby and if so, this whole article should be reported as abuse. The article is a promotional ad, not an editorial.

  • Apple Pullback: Stock Price, Financial Statements Get Together, Finally [View article]
    Hi Deol,
    If you dig around surely you'll find lots of reasons aapl moves down. There are lots of "experts" who comment on everything at CNBC, websites, etc. A few of them may even be right. My feeling on why aapl falls: Everything they do flies in the face of conventional wisdom. Basically, AAPL is not really understood as a business by a lot of people. IMHO its one of the best companies in the world. Aapl is far ahead of its time and is undervalued because its not understood. So most people don't really understand what goes wrong in the company some times when it does. Actually, the company does not even expect, or want, steady growth or earnings because, as Steve Jobs says "not taking a risk is the biggest risk of all"
    The other issue is Steve Jobs' health - that is a genuine cause for concern.
    Last, see the post here on Accumulation and Distribution. And forget that it goes up and down, as long as it is likely to go up again, be happy. The downs give you great prices to buy at. So be grateful for the downs.

  • Cisco: High Quality at a Bargain Price [View article]
    @smartstops -- stop promoting what seems like sensible, but isn't. People who are thinking of buying this service - first take a look at the vast number of negative comments on Forbes about this concept:

    @jimmy46 and CGP -- if its true that their products suck, then csco's a great short -- and not a buy. The author hasn't done his research with users.

  • Goodbye QE2, Time to Short the QQQ [View article]
    Excellent article, ending with an actionable suggestion.
    The drawback of course is if the market goes up by 5% you get nothing. So, offer a technical level above which one should sell off the puts. Think of it as a stop-loss for the puts.

    If something happens to Steve, I'd give aapl tops a year or two. 0.000001% of the people in the world think the way he does. I don't see anyone else like him in the company - but maybe they are there. In that case they should come out in the open so that the public can gain confidence in appl

    You may be a complete moron but you are the key to a winning strategy: yes, do the exact opposite of what you advocate and you will beat almost everyone.

    Oh -- you want to know why you are a complete moron? Simple. For all the years you spent in analysis (pun intended) you don't even understand, that when sales go up crazily, the percentage of most expenses goes down. THAT'S JUST THE FUNDAMENTAL NATURE OF MOST TYPES OF BUSINESS. DUH.

    The icing on the moronic cake? Your comment that just because it went down 8% the company is now a buy -- though it hadn't been for years! LOL!
    8% would be a margin of error for a stock that moves this rapidly - Yet you think your calculations are so precise that you didn't buy aapl, but now can!

    What a puffed up, arrogant belief in yourself. Anybody else that missed AAPL would be too ashamed to call himself an analyst and certainly not be stupid enough to write about it.

    I'm still laughing at your article....and you can keep crying, while AAPL soon becomes the world's largest company by market cap. Even a kid couldn't have missed aapl, its as easy as seeing iphones in everyone's hands and ipads out of stock. I guess you never thought these facts mattered.

    In fact, the only value in this article is that if *you* see value, it might be time to run away from AAPL. This is the first time I am actually concerned about AAPL. So you see, there is some value in your article after all. So don't quit your job, but if you do, you can work in an AAPL store. They are hiring.

    What this website needs is a feature called "not tracking" for authors like this one and "The Sane Investor". A blacklist.

    May be true eventually but will take longer than one would have patience. Look at Citi.
    Better idea would be start investing only when it starts showing life for a few quarters. At this price, what's the rush?
    What if it falls again due to bad sentiment about the stock -- what if all the funds decide they don't want it?
    Don't be in a hurry.

  • Why (Almost) $400 Silver Is a Realistic Peak Price [View article]
    This article about the ratio being the reason for a price increase is like a dog chasing its own tail. The ratio is the outcome, not the reason, for price moves. You can't use it as an argument because the swings (as per your own article) are pretty wide. So you based your article on gold going through the roof -- well -- if that happens, you don't need ratios to tell you that silver will rise with more volatility.

    Hi Mike What's a good website for some long-term silver charts? Kitco doesn't work for me.

  • 3 Reasons Microsoft's Skype Acquisition Makes Sense [View article]
    Seriously though...
    The article is absolutely amateur stuff. When you pay $8.5 bn, you can't justify it because it gives your Mobile OS one more feature.
    MS paid some $400 mn for hotmail many years back, still not recovered.
    BTW you don't even understand Telepresence.
    "The sane investor" thinks conclusions from seriously limited knowledge and knee-jerk reactions can form an article. Jeez. Young man, do your research for a few WEEKS before you even dare to unleash your articles on us. You are being cut to ribbons and looking really stupid.

  • Why It's Highly Unlikely Silver's Parabolic Rise Was a Short-Squeeze [View article]
    Agree with you. BTW where is that "still short" 176 million ounces figure from, and what was it before the crash? And where are the 5 days left for 1 million ounces from? It would be good to know the source.
    Of course, it makes a huge difference to investment strategy whether or not it goes $50 in one year or in one month. What kind of investments are you making in silver?
